Red Chris Mine

The Red Chris mine is located 80 km south of Dease Lake and 18 km southeast of the village of Iskut, British Columbia. The mine operates year round. The current workforce at Red Chris mine is 330 employees. About half the employees are from surrounding northern communities, over 28% are First Nations and 20% are female. We utilize a charter flight service year round to the Dease Lake airport from the South Terminal in Richmond, with marshaling points along the way. A typical route is about 4 hours from Vancouver to Dease Lake, with 2 stops along the way to load/unload passengers. A bus shuttles employees between the Dease Lake airport and the mine site, an approx. 1.5 hour commute. All employees who work at the mine, stay in camp for the duration of their shift. Employees are provided a private room, snacks and three meals daily. The camp has a commissary, recreation facility, games room, fitness room, TV room, areas for socializing, and a room with public phones. Each single room has satellite TV (48 channels) and Wi-Fi availability. The Red Chris camp and mine site maintains and enforces a zero tolerance for alcohol and drugs, and verbal/physical abuse or bullying.
